Sony Xperia 1 V 256GB 5G Factory Unlocked Smartphone

With its next-generation Exmor T for mobile sensor and computational processing, the Xperia 1 V delivers low-light pictures that you never thought possible on a smartphone, with less noise and wider dynamic range – and videos with cinematic color expression. Its imaging prowess is complemented by other features, from immersive entertainment to functional, tactile design.

Unprecedented image quality

The Xperia 1 V's revolutionary Exmor T for mobile image sensor has an innovative 2-Layer Transistor Pixel – one for the photodiode and one for the phototransistor – 2x times better than the predecessor in low light8,9, with less noise. People, animals, cityscapes, landscapes: your world, beautifully captured. 

Video with cinematic color and tone 

S-Cinetone for mobile Based on technology from Sony's Cinema Line cameras, S-Cinetone for mobile enables you to shoot video with beautiful skin tones and a more cinematic look, without complex post-production color grading.

Immersive entertainment

With its 21:9 4K HDR OLED 120Hz wide display and premium audio technologies, the Xperia 1 V lets you lose yourself in movies, TV, music and games.

Functional, tactile design

Stylish matte finish, the materials used on the Xperia 1 V combine for aesthetic appeal. Functional design elements also include a shutter button for easy shooting, along with V-shaped grooves carved into the phone's metal frame to maximize grip.

Capture amazing shots even in dark scenes

Using the latest computational processing to reduce noise and enhance dynamic range, this feature lets you capture bright images even in dark scenes where details are barely visible to the naked eye.

Cinematic video, no color grading needed

Based on the S-Cinetone loved by professionals in the Cinema Line and Alpha series, S-Cinetone for mobile allows easy shooting of a cinema-like look and produces impressive images with beautiful skin tones without post-editing. Combined with high frame rate video recording at up to 4K and 120fps on all lenses, it gives you greater scope for creative expression.

6 preset looks, just like Alpha 

Like some Alpha cameras, the Xperia 1 V features Creative Look, a selection of 6 preset looks to use when shooting photos or video. You can customize the presets to suit your creative vision, saving you post-processing time – so you can share your work on social media immediately after shooting.

Record in 4K HDR 120fps

No need to compromise on quality – the Xperia 1 V lets you shoot stunning video in 4K HDR 120fps on all lenses. You can also select frame rate settings to produce up to 5x slow-motion clips.

Create content with a choice of lenses

The Xperia 1 V wide-angle 24mm lens is paired with the new Exmor T for mobile sensor with 2-Layer Transistor Pixel. The camera set-up is complemented by the ultra-wide 16mm, and the telephoto with true optical zoom between 85 and 125mm. All main lenses offer 4K HDR 120fps video recording, Eye AF, Real-time tracking and ZEISS T* anti-reflective coating, which contributes to the superior optical quality of images by minimizing unwanted lens effects such as reflections. An improved 12MP front camera completes the camera set-up.

True optical zoom lens with no image degradation

With true 85-125mm optical zoom, the Xperia 1 V offers images free of digital degradation between 85mm-125mm. Combined with optical stabilization and Real-time Eye AF and tracking, it's ideal for portraits with optical bokeh.

See the difference with improved AI

Conventional processing is supported by the latest AI to deliver exceptional results. In addition to accurately calculating depth information for fast, precise Auto Focus, AI is now used to compute Auto Exposure too. It also ensures accurate color reproduction, even in complex lighting environments.

Beautiful skin tones

The Xperia 1 V can achieve incredible natural skin tones under various light situations.
